Here we go! It’s another Tuesday and it is time for LISTS! You might not like my post today because I will be talking about Characters that I Just Don’t Get! My post may list your favorite character so, if you are a little testy, you have been warned!
These aren’t characters that I love to hate. These are characters that I just plain did not get, did not like, and did not understand. At. All.
ELISA | The Girl of Fire and Thorns | Rae Carson
I had a problem lining Elisa at all. I just felt that she was too immature in this book and I did not connect with her at all. I think one of the reasons why a lot of readers liked her because she was not a skinny heroine in the beginning. That being said, I just didn;t get her at all. This book ended up as a DNF for me because of this reason.
GRACE | Shiver | Maggie Stiefvater
This is another book that I DNF’d and it was partly because of Grace. I also did not connect with her and I felt she was a little too weird for me. I mean, the way she loves the wolf that saved her is just – odd. I get that it is Sam but it just weirded me out.
LIA | The Kiss of Deception | Mary E. Pearson
I did not get The Kiss of Deception at all mostly because of Lia. Again, you see the trend here? I thought she was an unlikeable character that did nothing the whole book! I mean NOTHING! She just runs away from an arranged marriage and then hides away in an inn (?) while not pretending to be a normal person. I just didn’t get it.
BELLA | Twilight | Stephenie Meyer
OH BOY! One of my least favorites heroines of all! The worst part of Bella was just ignoring ALL HER FRIENDS BECAUSE OF A BOY! I mean come on! And we see this in the second book, and the next and the next. Just stupid selfish actions, especially to her father. ARRGHH!!!
SOPHIA | Their Fractured Light | Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
I loved the Starbound series but I didn’t like Sophia. I just did not get her. Sure she was a con artist but I didn’t understand her plans for vengeance. She was a little standoffish, too and I actually felt bad for Gideon.
ETIENNE | Anna and the French Kiss | Stephanie Perkins
Don’t shoot me please! Because even though I like the name Etienne, I HATED HIM! I did not like his indecisiveness between his current girlfriend and Anna. I mean he was stringing two other girls AT ALL! Can he be that clueless and not feel that 2 girls are falling for him? And I don’t care what other people said, he CHEATED ON HIS GIRLFRIEND to be with Anna.
KAIDAN | Sweet Evil | Wendy Higgins
Kaidan was just too much of a bad boy for me. He’s the stereotypical bad boy that was too perfect for me. Meeh.
WARNER | Shatter Me | Tahereh Mafi
OH EM GEE WARNER! I hated him the moment he appeared on the scene! Plus, I liked Adam and I couldn’t understand how Juliette picked Warner over Adam!
EDWARD | Twilight | Stephenie Meyer
The hero that everyone thinks is the perfect guy. I mean STALKER perfect! He wasn’t even an ALPHA hero! All his actions in the consequent books show him as a spineless coward so do not get me started on him. There is nothing cute or dreamy about him.
MAXON | The Selection | Kiera Cass
Ahhh the prince who had to choose a princess in a The Bachelor type of reality show. Meeh. I wasn’t impressed by him at all. Honestly, I had a problem with the whole series but he was the worst character of them all!
Do you have characters that you hate? Do you agree or disagree with my above choices? Let’s chat!
